The Belcourt is a non-profit theater tucked into the Hillsboro Village neighborhood, where it first opened in 1925. Today, its mission is “to engage, enrich, and educate through innovative film programming in our historic theatre, our community, and beyond.”
The theater’s mission is evident in the unique and diverse films that they offer, educational programs that they provide, and their legion of devoted members. The Belcourt rotates movies almost weekly, showing a broad range of films for every movie goer – independent films, foreign films, classics, Oscar contenders, kid-friendly films, and more.
Each year leading up to the Oscars, they show the Oscar nominated short films. And on the big night, they host a Red Carpet event for members where you can watch the stars of the big screen on the big screen.
In the summertime, the Belcourt hosts outdoor movies in the parking lot where people bring chairs, blankets, and pillows to watch a movie projected on the side of the building. Join their mailing list to keep up to date on all of the fun events they have throughout the year.
And you can’t forget about the snacks! The Belcourt offers your traditional movie-watching favorites: popcorn, soda, and candy. But you can also step up your movie-snacking game and order beer or wine, hummus and pita chips, baked goods from neighboring Fido, and more local deliciousness.
Once you’ve been to a movie at the Belcourt, you’ll be purchasing your membership in no time. We’ll see you there!
